Second Looks proprietor Benny Winstead has refinished and restored antique and vintage furniture for hundreds of satisfied customers in the last twenty years. In 2013 he decided to retire from the furniture refinishing business to enjoy his team of mules and his hobby farm. The industry will miss his proud work and devotion, but we wish him well in his retirement!

Once you have your photos digitally retouched, they will never fade away again - if they do, you just print or have a film developer print a new copy! Jeanne has Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom and is taking computer graphic design classes at Ivy Tech, as she can. She has worked with digital photographs for over ten years. She is starting a photo touch-up service to restore and repair old photos. As a startup venture, she is happy to offer discounted rates. She will give you her best effort and if the repair requires more than she can give, she will be honest with you and refer you on to other professionals.

One advantage to digital retouching is that your precious photos need never leave your possession or even leave your house, if you have a scanner! Jeanne will be happy to walk you through obtaining a high quality scan which you can then email to her. The retouched images can be returned via email or downloaded or mailed on a dvd. Or you can do business with her in person if you prefer.

We accept Pay Pal.

Purchases are not final until images meet your approval.
